At the hospital, Abby’s dropping off Stitch’s Valentine’s Day gift early – she knows he needs to spend time with Max. Stitch says he enrolled Max in school and they need to act like a family. They make a date for later.
At the lab, Devon worries to Hilary whether working with them could cause Neil to drink again. Hilary feels they can’t risk it. Neil shows up and tells them about his relapse. He wants them to live their lives. They thank him. Once alone, Devon tells Hilary he needs them to have faith in him. Elsewhere, Simon asks Ashley if she has Valentine’s plans and gifts her with a bottle of pills wrapped in a red ribbon. Neil appears and wants to talk business. Neville assures him they will have a product ready soon. Ash has full confidence in Simon. Abby arrives with a marketing plan. She talks them all into going to the GCAC Valentine’s Day party later.

Billy informs Victor he won’t stop them; he’s going to fight for his family. Nikki is happy and makes a pitch to Victor to support it. Victor appreciates Billy being man enough to come there. Billy also has a favor to ask him.
At Summer’s place, she tells Natalie that Kyle can’t get home for Valentine’s Day. Natalie thinks he could come if he really wanted to. Natalie’s never had a boyfriend, so doesn’t have these problems. Victoria arrives looking for a progress report. Natalie informs her she’s hit a wall and needs a break. She’s going to go to the Valentine’s Day party at the Club later. Victoria huffs that she needs to focus on work. Natalie won’t listen. Once alone, Summer works to convince Victoria that Natalie deserves a night off. Victoria gets a Valentine’s invitation from Billy in Italian and softens.

Hilary says they’re all on the same side, but Lily cuts her off. Nearby, Neil is sneaking drinks. Cane tells Lily she’s done a great job tonight. Things have been better, but Cane says they still have things to resolve, which is why he hasn’t come home. Meanwhile, Nikki takes Victor home for a private celebration. Abby wonders why Ben isn’t there. Across the room, Hilary feels right being with Devon. “You are the love of my life.” Devon kisses her. Neil sees and promptly falls into a table. Everyone gapes.
At the hospital, Neville tells Stitch that he and Ashley were leaving the lab when she got weak. Ben wants to do tests. Ashley refuses.
